“How long, O Lord?” “When will you answer my prayer?” “Why must I wait so long for your promise to be fulfilled?”
The Christian journey is not endless bliss with perfect relationships and an abundant financial portfolio. Perfection can only be found in Christ. Even though lovers of God experience fullness of life, they still face unexpected trials, unpredictable difficulties, and seemingly unsolvable problems.
Every child of God will have a wilderness experience, but not everyone has to have a wilderness wandering.
In The Wilderness, Brian and Candice share some of their difficult seasons as tribal missionaries in Central and South America where they encountered demonic powers, lost their possessions in a flooding river, and experienced their daughter being bitten by a venomous snake. Combined with the wilderness encounters the Israelites faced, these stories will help you understand your own challenges of faith, delayed answers to prayer, and miraculous interventions that display God’s glory.
God wants to bring you from the wilderness to a miracle. You will make it through to the other side and discover God’s heart of love for you!
DR. BRIAN & CANDICE SIMMONS, together with their three children, spent nearly eight years in the tropical rain forest of the Darien Province of Panama. During their time there Brian served as a church planter, translator, and consultant. Brian was involved in the Paya-Kuna New Testament translation project and studied linguistics and Bible translation principles with New Tribes Mission. He is now the lead translator for The Passion Translation. Both Brian and Candice travel full time speaking, teaching, and helping churches and leaders grow in Christ. They make their home in Wichita, Kansas.
